Previously, Haagen Dazs translated into really good, fat-laden ice cream. But now there is the slimmed-down Haagen Dazs Light.
What's lost is half the fat. Labels show that they have 60 to 90 fewer calories per half-cup than their regular versions, and less than half the fat.
What that means in terms of calories varies with each flavor. The label on Cherry Fudge Truffle notes that it contains 50-percent less fat and 14-percent fewer calories than regular super-premium ice cream.
A 1/2-cup serving of that flavor contains 230 calories and 7 grams of fat.
Is it REALLY Low in Fat?
Consumer reports did a review of Haagen Daz Light and had this to say: "If our tasters hadn't conducted side-by-side tests, they might have thought some flavors were full fat. In fact, they were fooled into thinking the lower-fat coffee and dulce de leche caramel were the regular versions."
Seven Flavors Haagen Dazs Light Products

Haagen Dazs Fat Free Sorbets
We have to give Haagen-Dazs Fat Free Sorbet's an honorable mention. The Mango is a blend of juicy, tropical mangoes that comes in at a creamy but reasonable 120 calories per 1/2 cup serving, 0 grams fat, and contains vitamins A and C. This sorbet is very satisfying and very refreshing on a hot day. We think it's safe to say this sorbet is totally indulgent!
The Cranberry Blueberry Fat Free Sorbet flavor is a blend of tart cranberries and sweet blueberries. It has a very nice flavor that is refreshing and tart - but isn't TOO tart. 100 calories per 1/2 cup, 0 fat, 8 percent RDA for vitamin C.
